Police say a 17-year-old was struck and killed by a G train headed toward Coney Island on Tuesday night at the 4th Avenue and 9th Street station.
According to the NYPD, the call came in for a teenager on the southbound track just after 5 p.m. They say she was seen walking along the southbound track before a southbound G train struck and killed her.
The medical examiner was seen at the scene and police say that no criminality is suspected at this time. Commuters were immediately removed from the train and put on a bus or took an alternate route.
“There is a lot of things happening, like yesterday somewhere in Manhattan,” said subway rider Jose Hernandez. “It’s too much. My head is like, all confused about it.”
